Copying Previous Online Forms Submission

Once an applicant submits an online form, there will be a button to “Start New Application”:

Start a new Application after completing a Submission

This option allows the system to reference the previously submitted data, so that when the applicant is filling in a particular form for the new application, there will be an option to “Copy from Previous Submission”:

Copy data from a Previous Submission

Clicking this button will pre-fill the current form with the previously submitted data. The user can then change the fields as necessary before saving / submitting.

Updating Online Forms Payment Options

We’ve updated the options when configuring payment options for Online Form submissions. You can now select whether an item is a “Single” or “Multi” item product”:

Updated Options for Online Payments in Online Forms

For single item products, users will not be able to change the quantity. Instead, depending on whether the product is mandatory (or optional), there will be a check box to include/exclude the item during submissions:

Improved Interface for Applicants when submitting forms with Payments

You can also enter negative amounts for discounts.

Payment Options for Admissions

We’ve made the Online Payment Options for Online Forms also available in the Admissions module. However this feature is only available on the Public Form (which is shared with parents via email):

New option to Collect Fees (via Online Payments) for Admissions Applications

The embedded form does not yet support Online Payments. We’ll prepare a more detailed description on how this works in a future article. Stay tuned.

The Documents tab on the student record in now sortable by Upload Date, Mailed Date, Comments and Physical Location. Just click on the header to sort:
